Learn about + make beautiful bugs!  Join PBS host and bug enthusiast Adam Lazarus and CodeJoy’s Kelsey Derringer for two classes that explore the magical insects around you, teach you how they do what they do through hands-on making, and then let you program and control a robotic insect game in the CodeJoy studio from your own home! Each class is 1.5 hours and cost for both sessions is $50 (per seat, more than one camper can participate). Part make-and-take webinar, part crafting + coding class, part interview, part adventure this class is a blast for anyone! #maketogether as a family or meet up online with far away friends!
